Our Favorite Rooms From 'Fixer to Fabulous'
It's hard to play favorites with designs this good, but we chose some standout rooms from Dave and Jenny Marrs.
Kitchen With Rustic Details and Open Shelving
The Newberries wanted a bright, open and clean renovation for the kitchen in their historic home. The combination of the open shelving, white paint and rustic accents were the perfect fit.
Neutral Shabby Chic Master Bedroom
The shabby-chic details of the bedroom are in line with the historical elements of the Newberry home.
Living Room With Rustic Wood Accents
The neutral living room of the Newberry home features a bright color palette with rustic wood accents.
Fresh Kitchen With Bold Colors
When Jenny and Dave met with Sarah Walker to discuss the details of the renovation on her Victorian home, she told them that she wanted to see the entire kitchen gutted. They opted to start fresh and gave her a bold, modern kitchen with colorful accents.
Outdoor Porch Turned Into an Oasis
Dave and Jenny also fixed the back deck of the Walker house by removing the rotting parts, treating and sealing all of the wood. The result was a calming outdoor oasis for Sarah, who loves yoga and travel.
Book Lover's Living Room With Unique Details
The Brays wanted to surprise their oldest, book-loving daughter Rainy with a renovation while she was out of town. They made a point to mention to Dave and Jenny how much their daughter loves to read, so the Marrs crew put together a statement bookshelf, complete with a functional ladder from an old railcar.
Master Bedroom With Dark Accent Wall
Although Rainy's parents mentioned that she would love an all-white color palette for the walls, Jenny added a moody blue accent wall to the master bedroom to give it more depth.
Master Bedroom With Tropical Feature Wall
Mary Christine and Ryan Neal wanted a tropical wallpaper to modernize their master bedroom, but that look was hard to achieve on a tight budget. Jenny used stencils to paint the leaf motif, deivering the getaway look without the steep price tag.
Calm Living Room With Transitional Details
Tom and Laura Gheen wanted a home that reflects their entertainment-centric lifestyle. Their 1926 home is on record as being the first on their street in downtown Bentonville. Although its old age lends it charm and history, it comes with a tiny layout. Dave and Jenny opened up their living room by adding French doors that lead to an outdoor entertainment haven.
Eat-In Transitional Kitchen Has Dark Cabinets and Granite Countertops
Dave and Jenny updated the Gheen kitchen with new cabinets, new countertops and new appliances that are better suited for having people over. They also added a separate dining space.
Bright Living Room With Incredible Vaulted Ceiling
This home went from a dark and dated 1970s interior to a bright and welcoming space thanks to Jenny's design for the Craddock family.
Dining Room With Tons of Natural Light
The dining area in the Craddock home got a major upgrade with expansive windows and the custom light fixture.
Cozy Living Room With Family Heirlooms
Todd and Lisa Crowder want to be in their century-old farmhouse for a long time, but it was a tight squeeze for their family of five. Dave and Jenny honored the history of the home by bringing it up to date and including small family details, like the family letter on the wall.
Open-Concept Dining Area With Farmhouse Touches
The complete kitchen overhaul for the Crowders included new cabinets, countertops, flooring and an island. The rustic details and fixtures are perfect for honoring the tradition of the home, while the built-ins add storage and room for the vintage details that make the space so special.
Open Living Room With Rustic Wooden Beams
Kelsey and Jefferson Baldwin wanted to keep their terracotta tile in place while updating the rest of the dated interior, so Jenny came up with a light and bright design to complement the earthy tones of the floors. The result? A wonderfully lit, livable space.
Rustic Living Room With Light Wood Ceiling
Adam and Vanessa Maris bought an old mill cabin with their sights set on moving closer to Adam's job in the wildnerness of Northwest Arkansas. Jenny painted and brightened up the wood accents to bring the cabin up to date without compromising the integrity and rustic charm.
Kitchen With Tons of Natural Light
The kitchen windows over the sink let in a beautiful amount of natural light. They also open directly onto the deck, making the most out of the indoor-outdoor living style of the Maris family.
Master Bedroom With Massive Windows
The whitewashed wood in the master suite of the Maris cabin is the perfect example of modern cabin style.
All-White Kitchen With a Few Dark Accents
When Jenny asked the Coopers what they wanted in the kitchen, Cynthia Cooper's message of "All white!" was heard loud and clear. There are a few pops of darker colors that set off the pristine design.
Living Space With Double Archways
The Cooper home has several archways in the living spaces, giving the cottage the old-world feel that they desired.
Jenny and Dave were able to restore a family heirloom to be the focal point of the Coopers' study. The current color of the shelving and modern light fixture are the perfect contrast to the old-school desk.
Living Room With Ingenious Fireplace
Lindsey and Nick Smallridge wanted a fireplace without the safety hazards for their young children. Jenny found the compromise of a kid-friendly water vapor fireplace that complements the midcentury-modern look of the living room. This standout piece does emit heat, but the "flame" is actually steam that is lit to look like a real fire.
